Grouse Hunitng in Maine

I am going to Maine to hunt grouse the second week of October. Any of you have experience up there?

We shoot a few grouse every year on our hare hunts. This past year they were everywhere, it was the most I've seen in about 6 years. Just ID your target, you don't want to shoot a spruce grouse.

Take a GPS unit with you, because it is very easy to get lost up there. Other than that have fun. Maine is a great place to hunt. What part of Maine are you going to?

Spruce grouse are protected in Maine.

Don't get caught with a spruce grouse. They aren't that hard to tell apart.

Parry, we're doing the Maine trip this year too! Instead of bear we'll be hunting grouse and getting in some fly fishing. We'll be on the Western edge in Eustice. Have a great hunt!!
